I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith
Book DescriptionOne of the 20th Century's most beloved novels is still winning hearts! """I Capture the Castle" tells the story of seventeen-year-old Cassandra and her family, who live in not-so-genteel poverty in a ramshackle old English castle. Here she strives, over six turbulent months, to hone her writing skills. She fills three notebooks with sharply funny yet poignant entries. Her journals candidly chronicle the great changes that take place within the castle's walls, and her own first descent into love. By the time she pens her final entry, she has "captured the castle"-- and the heart of the reader-- in one of literature's most enchanting entertainments. This book has one of the most charismatic narrators I've ever met. -- "J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series""

Author Biography - Dodie Smith
Dorothy Gladys "Dodie" Smith, was born in 1896 in Lancashire, England, and she was one of the most successful female dramatists of her generation. She wrote "Autumn,"" ""Crocus,"" "and "Dear Octopus,"" "among other plays, but her first novel, "I Capture the Castle" (Little Brown, 1948) was written when she lived in America during the '40s and marked her crossover debut from playwright to novelist. the novel became an immediate success and was produced as a play in 1954. Her other novels were "The Town in Bloom," "It Ends with Revelations," "A Tale of Two Families," and "The Girl in the Candle-Lit Bath." Today, however, she is best known for her stories for young readers, "The Hundred and One Dalmations" (Heinemann, 1956) and "The Starlight Barking" (Heinemann, 1967; Simon & Schuster, 1968). "The Hundred and One Dalmations" was inspired by Dodie's own Dalmation named Pongo, and became the basis of two Disney films. "The Starlight Barking" is also available in paperback from St. Martin's press. Dodie Smith died in 1990.
